1016328_420444734736266_378341861_n_004John McCain showed his true colors again today, and not one of them was red, white or blue. In one of the most revolting acts against American citizens, McCain submitted an amendment to the Patriot Act that would allow the FBI unfettered access to meta data, browser search histories, and other private information……without a warrant, and only with a suspicion based on nothing other than “they can”. Liken this to police now being able to kick in your door because they say they smell something. They most likely do….the stench of the police state.

The Patriot Act and its successor The Security Enhancement Act of 2003 were blatant attacks on the constitution and our natural rights and liberties guaranteed therein. Apparently, not content with those rights robbing pieces of legislation brought to you by those elected officials who seemed to forget who we are as a nation and where we come from. Of course, I have no doubt the Senator and all his anti-American buddies in the senate will be immune from this wholesale spying.

From an article at NewsVice.com

“[McCain’s amendment] isn’t a solution,” Guliani added. “It’s the opposite. It increases dangers for American liberties.”

This would strip out all the protections and buffers between [the government] and everyday citizens. It would allow the FBI to get this information with just a subpoena, under a shroud of secrecy. You may never know. These subpoenas are often accompanied by gag orders,” Guliani said. “Abuses stay hidden.”

“An audit by the Office of the Inspector General (IG) at the Department of Justice in 2007 found that the FBI illegally used NSLs to collect information that was not permitted by the NSL statutes.”

I think its time we stood up to these police state advocates. Of course if we do, there will most likely be another staged “mass shooting”. That ought to scare the beetlejuice out of you!

Its time that we, as a nation, stood up and demanded the resignation of any senator or representative who votes to violate and trash our rights. Americans did not attack us on 9/11 and the subsequent Sandy Hook and Boston Marathon fiascos have been outed as the hoaxes they were. The recent Orlando shooting looks to be another FBI staged terror op where people were actually sacrificed to make it appear legitimate. All of it to scare you, to terrify you, to make you voluntarily forfeit your rights.

Don’t let “Traitor” McCain get away with this!

Congressional Criminals Selling Off Apache Holy Land to a foreign corporation…

NYT OP-ED

Lydia Millet is the author, most recently, of the novel “Mermaids in Paradise,” and a contributing opinion writer.

Tucson

ABOUT an hour east of Phoenix, near a mining town called Superior, men, women and children of the San Carlos Apache tribe have been camped out at a place called Oak Flat for more than three months, protesting the latest assault on their culture.

Three hundred people, mostly Apache, marched 44 miles from tribal headquarters to begin this occupation on Feb. 9. The campground lies at the core of an ancient Apache holy place, where coming-of-age ceremonies, especially for girls, have been performed for many generations, along with traditional acorn gathering. It belongs to the public, under the multiple-use mandate of the Forest Service, and has had special protections since 1955, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower decreed the area closed to mining — which, like cattle grazing, is otherwise common in national forests — because of its cultural and natural value. President Richard M. Nixon’s Interior Department in 1971 renewed this ban.

Despite these protections, in December 2014, Congress promised to hand the title for Oak Flat over to a private, Australian-British mining concern. A fine-print rider trading away the Indian holy land was added at the last minute to the must-pass military spending bill, the National Defense Authorization Act. By doing this, Congress has handed over a sacred Native American site to a foreign-owned company for what may be the first time in our nation’s history.

The Apache are occupying Oak Flat to protest this action — to them, a sacrilegious and craven sell-off of a place “where Apaches go to pray,” in the words of the San Carlos Apache tribal chairman, Terry Rambler. The site will doubtless be destroyed for any purpose other than mining; Resolution Copper Mining will hollow out a vast chamber that, when it caves in, will leave a two-mile-wide, 1,000-foot-deep pit. The company itself has likened the result of its planned mining at Oak Flat to that of a nearby meteor crater.

The land grab was sneakily anti-democratic even by congressional standards. For more than a decade, the parcel containing Oak Flat has been coveted by Rio Tinto, Resolution’s parent company — which already mines on its own private land in the surrounding area — for the high-value ores beneath it.

The swap — which will trade 5,300 acres of private parcels owned by the company to the Forest Service and give 2,400 acres including Oak Flat to Resolution so that it can mine the land without oversight — had been attempted multiple times by Arizona members of Congress on behalf of the company. (Among those involved was Rick Renzi, a former Republican representative who was sent to federal prison in February for three years for corruption related to earlier versions of the land-transfer deal.) It always failed in Congress because of lack of support. But this time was different. This time, the giveaway language was slipped onto the defense bill by Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona at the 11th hour. The tactic was successful only because, like most last-minute riders, it bypassed public scrutiny.

Syria: An obstacle to taking down Iran….

____________________________________________________________________________________________

A major effort is underway to begin yet another war of aggression against another mid-eastern country who refuses to submit to the global bankers or, to allow global oil cartels access to the country’s largest asset….oil.  Syria and Iran stand as the last two countries refusing to submit to global banking and a complete takeover of oil assets.  Syria is the last roadblock to Iran, and the federal corporation we call “government” is desperate to start blasting Iran.

Senator John McCain (R) was beating the war drums yet again on February 10, 2014,  to send us into another unnecessary and illegal war with a country whose leader is marked for destruction, although he did not mention who would be appointed to head up the new government in Syria when we got done destroying another oil rich nation that has not harmed us or threatened us.save

McCain was quoted by ABC News as saying:

“When the images and horrors of this conflict occasionally show up on our television screens, the impulse of many Americans is to change the channel,” McCain said on the Senate floor. “But we must not look away. We must not avert our eyes from the suffering of the Syrian people – for, if we do, we ignore, we sacrifice that which is most precious in ourselves: our ability to empathize with the suffering of others, to share it, to acknowledge through our own sense of revulsion that what is happening in Syria today is a stain on  the collective conscience of moral peoples everywhere.”

Basically, our impulse to change the channel comes from the incessant lies, deceptions, frauds, and continual misinformation fabricated to convince the American public of some fictional threat that can be used to affect policy and the continued efforts to take over the mid east.  All of this issuing from the mouths of government officials who all have their fingers in the cookie jar.

John McCain’s Attack On Liberty

Leave a comment

By Chuck Baldwin

March 16, 2010

“The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 enjoys support from the most liberal members of Congress. It is an invitation for the FDA to assume broad new powers and replicate here the system now operating in Europe over dietary supplements where dietary ingredients are presumed adulterated and unlawful to sell unless pre-approved by the government”

This column is archived here:

Anyone paying attention knows that John McCain has been a Big-Government Globalist Neocon (BGGN) for virtually his entire senatorial career. As with many BGGNs hiding out in the Republican Party, McCain likes to talk about smaller government, but his track record is littered with the promotion of one big government program after another. But, what else would one expect from a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)?Lately, however, McCain has outdone himself. He has introduced two bills in the US Senate that are about as Machiavellian as they could be. I am referring to S.3081, a bill that would authorize the federal government to detain American citizens indefinitely without trial, and S.3002, a bill that would authorize the federal government to regulate vitamins, minerals, and virtually all health and natural food products.

According to Examiner.com, “Last week, John McCain introduced a bill into the U.S. Senate which, if passed, would actually allow U.S. citizens to be arrested and detained indefinitely, all without Miranda rights or ever being charged with a crime.” More

Senator McCain Files New Bill That Attacks Your Access to Supplements and Repeals Key Sections of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act

4 Comments

 It appears since congress couldn’t pass CODEX into law quite as fast as they anticipated, John McCain is taking the first step in the “do it one piece at a time” approach.  If we don’t rid ourselves of this bunch of globalist, corporate puppeteers…..shame on us!  Marti

 Supplement Health and Education Act

TAKE ACTION AND TELL YOUR SENATOR NOT TO CO-SPONSOR THIS BILL

Senator McCain’s bill is called The Dietary Supplement Safety Act (DSSA). It would repeal key sections of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA). DSHEA protects supplements if 1) they are food products that have been in the food supply and not chemically altered or 2) if they were sold as supplements prior to 1994, the year that DSHEA was passed. If a supplement fits one of these two descriptions, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cannot arbitrarily ban it or reclassify it as a drug.

These protections are far from perfect. They discourage companies from developing new forms of supplements. New supplements may be arbitrarily banned by the FDA or adopted by drug companies in a way that precludes their further sale as supplements.

McCain’s bill would wipe out even the minimal protections contained in DSHEA. It would give the FDA full discretion and power to compile a discreet list of supplements allowed to remain on the market while banning all others.

Everyone knows that the FDA is friendly to drug More

A view from the Pews….The McCain Comedy

Leave a comment

After prevailing upon MSM to repeatedly show the film clip of the “lady” who stood up and asked what the party was going to do about the “bitch”…referring of course to Hillary Clinton, it seems the Republican Party, that bastion of right wing holier-than-thou gasbags has found its own version.

 

As usual, wrapping itself in a bloody, war mongering flag and claiming that “God” is on their side the Republicans trotted out one of their personal picks: a woman who, although she has had a short political career, has shown herself to be mentally compromised by religious zealotry and totally on board with the “me first, as long as I can make a buck crowd.”

 

After months of assailing the Obama camp by regaling anyone that would listen with horror stories of what would happen if Obama was elected due to his lack of experience, the McCain camp, in what was a Hail Mary move, selected a virtual unknown woman who was already under investigation for abusing her office and who was linked to the Ted Stevens scandal netting herself 230 million in the process.  These activities along with her need to sit when she peed, was all that was needed to put her in position.  After all, there were all those disgruntled “Hillary” voters out there that the McCain camp desperately wanted to tap into.  And, the McCain campaign immediately ceased its warnings of the horrors to come at the hands of an inexperienced candidate because, even though Obama may not have a lot of experience, this new proto-type for Republican hypocrisy has even less. 

 

McCain’s campaign which could muster little support even within Republican voters, suddenly ended all the internal emails lambasting McCain for his alignment with Bush, his voting almost 90% of the time for Bush policies and citing the gross expansion of government and the failing economy as a result of those policies. The RNC was of course, furious.  They had selected McCain and by god that’s who the candidate was going to be.  Never mind that even lifelong Republican voters saw this unstable and volatile old man for what he was.  Now, armed with another “God wants us to kill the Muslims” candidate, the religious crowd is back on track and blood will continue to be shed for the corporate interests who own our government.

 

And what is the biggest reason cited for this sudden turn-about?  Well, if something should happen to McCain, Palin could step in easily.  Not one of these emails has cited the previous objections used to disparage Clinton such as being a woman and how it wasn’t christianly for a woman to be in the presidency because men were supposed to be running everything.  Not one of these new and improved emails castigates Palin for her mannish activities such as hunting moose…oh! No!  Instead her moose hunting escapades are becoming the campfire stories of hunters everywhere who envision themselves in a secluded forest, with Palin as their hunting buddy.  Gone is their disdain for the Clinton toughness now that their own candidate has exhibited far more manly actions and attitudes than Clinton ever thought of.  This doesn’t surprise me.  There seems to be a fair amount of gender confusion in the Republican Party and several of its members appear to have a real problem deciding just which gender they prefer on a personal level.  But, every once in while one of these undecided individuals is caught in their deception at which point the party faithful are commanded to pray for them so they can be healed of their “perverted” sickness. 

 

Oh! To be a Republican and fanatically religious too!  The possibilities are endless!

 

Casually surveying people I had previously talked with regarding who they were going to vote for, I found a sudden change in voting intention, especially among men who were historically Republican’s.  Two months ago this same group had stated emphatically that they would not vote for John McCain because:

 

a)      He was too old.

b)      He probably wouldn’t survive the first four years

c)      He was too closely aligned with Bush, whom they detested.

d)     And, he was too unstable and seemed to be verging on dementia.

 

Now, two months and Sarah Palin later, they would vote for McCain because:

 

a)      Palin has big boobs

b)      McCain probably won’t survive the first four years

c)      Palin is good looking

d)     Palin is tougher than most men and has big boobs.

 

As usual, the “born-again”, I gave my life to Jesus crowd seems to have its mind centered squarely below its waistline if they are male, and verging on some kind of euphoric religious experience if they are female. 

 

The obvious sexual tension that erupted from men when speaking about the VP pick was enough to cause testosterone to drip off the walls.  One has to wonder what happened to all the acidic attacks launched against Hillary Clinton by this same group, who labeled Clinton’s toughness as “masculine” and went so far as to imply if not to say outright that she was a lesbian.  Of interest here is this: this is the same segment of the population that thinks Anne Coulter, of the bobbing Adams apple and protruding forehead and resonant masculine voice is a sex symbol.  Apparently this he-man female type is very appealing to the god crowd as long as they aren’t Democrats.

 

You have to give the Republicans their dues for their consistent hypocrisy and their ability to co-opt an entire segment of the population that has already shown its willingness to believe the irrational, the improbable, and the highly questionable all in the name of “faith”. 

 

As Mark Twain said, “Faith is believing what you know ain’t so”.  But apparently big boobs, inexperience and moose hunting make it so much easier, especially if you’re a Republican.
